Eric Vance, an avid gamer, bought the new game Mind Chasm from his local GameStop, drove home and eagerly popped in his purchase, only to discover that there was no actual gameplay - just one long cutscene.
"I was like, 'whoa, killer graphics, can't wait for the game to start'. But it never did!"
Cliff Gordon, creator of the game and co-founder of WTF Games, who developed Mind Chasm, is dumbfounded, but for different reasons.
"I'm confused," he said, responding to the furor caused by the game. "They saw the trailer. There was no actual gameplay shown. What's the problem? Nobody cried foul about the Metal Gear series, particularly Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. And that one had a few gameplay moments in between cutscenes that lasted up to fifteen minutes!"
In other news, Daikatana 2 cancelled due to sheer disbelief.
